There is only one way to feel peace when everything around us is chaos:
God’s love for us.
When there’s so much wrong around us -or in us- we can have the blessed assurance that God has our back, if we give Him the chance. I have had many troubling thoughts in these past few days about the lack of morals and empathy in our society. It’s so sad to think that we are immersed in this selfish reality of the “me and only me” culture.
Everywhere I see, people are so focused on themselves and their own life that there’s little room for anything but themselves. I have seen no empathy for others.
And the common denominator I see is the lack of faith in God. If we don’t have faith then anything and everything is ok. There’s no boundaries and no rules to follow. And then chaos ensue.
World :1 ~ Love:0
And this is not new. Jesus experienced the full weight of this kind of society, where his message of love and forgiveness wasn’t well received and He paid the maximum prize for us. He died so that we could be free of the shackles of sin.
Being the recipient of this kind of love might seem undeserved at first, but it’s there for us, always waiting for us to take that first step into accepting it. His love is unending and wonderful, and maybe the most real feeling we have ever felt in our life. It gives us purpose and identity.
There’s nothing to lose but everything to gain when you trust in Jesus. It’s free and eternal.
When the world rejects you, Jesus is waiting with open arms so that you may be loved, forgiven and free. 💕
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time”.
1 Timothy 2:3-6
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.
I've been pondering lately about God's grace and love and it's something that continues to amaze me. I can't fathom the level of love that He has for each and every one of us. It makes me want to praise Him even more, and every word I sing now makes even more sense because I know what I'm saying and what it means. It's like I have been let into heaven, and experience a state of constant awe, and unending joy that can't be compared to being there for real, but I'll take it. For now.
I heard this song from Cory Asbury, called "You wont' let go" and I immediately loved what it said:
All of my life before You
You've seen when I rise and when I fall
You're faithful beyond my weakness
Your love will never change, no
Your love will never change
You won't let go, You won't let go
You won't let go, You won't let go
You won't let go of my hand
It reminded me that God is always faithful no matter what. He sees every part of us, everything and there is nothing we can hide from Him. Our thoughts are as clear as day to Him and he knows us so well. Isn't that amazing?
God will never let us go. He will pursue us constantly but is up to us to respond to his love. And trust me his love is better that anything that you can imagine or desire. His love goes beyond common sense. When the world around us tell us we are not good enough, He tells us we are what He wants, we are his delight... It's this constant outpouring of love what makes me come back for more. I want to feel loved and understood. He can do that. Only God can embrace you in your broken state and tell you how much He loves you.
I encourage you to seek God with an open heart, in your broken, neglected and shattered state. He will make you new and will give you the love that will make you feel complete.
Have a blessed week!
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
There is power in the name of Jesus, there is power in his name. Only one name can save only one name can break every chain...Jesus.
I've had this song in my mind lately and it speaks so much truth about the power of Jesus. I wanted to write about it because I think its important to understand that you can trust in Him completely. Nothing is impossible for Jesus.
There is a great need for hope in this world and this can be safely found in Jesus. You don't have anything to lose by trying but everything to gain and, trust me it will change your life and the way that you see things forever. I'm not talking about religiosity or traditions, I'm talking about a true relationship with Jesus that will give you purpose and love beyond what you can imagine.
God is always waiting on us to reach out to Him. He doesn't want anything forced, that's not the point. He wants us completely and desperately but will never force us. Isn't that amazing? The creator of all, God Almighty wants us. He want us to have a relationship with him, so that we may find refuge, counsel, hope and salvation through Jesus.
There are no things in this world that can give you this hope and love. None. But once you have a taste of the love that God has to offer, you will fall to your knees in praise.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
